Have a look around click here

Type in the process into the search box and it'll tell you what it is and if it's required by the computer. Stop what you don't want running and keep the essential ones.

As far as the internet connection/IE problem is concerned, have you had a look around any of the IE options? Sorry, not really knowledgable with that :S

Hope this helps :)
